So Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) has now kicked in and we are in a new phase for Scottish Education… hhhmmmm!!!!!
I went to Moray House during the start of CfE so basically for the past six years the S1 and S2 courses have been created with CfE in mind.
Recently Learning & Teaching Scotland have annouced ‘National Assessment Resources’ (NAR) to help teachers with CfE… so I eagerly logged on to Glow and have to be honest was totally shocked and laughed at the resources/assessments online that are for Expressive Arts – Drama (Assessment Numeracy, Literacy and Health and Wellbeing). Are those really what I am aiming towards? If so… I’ll start looking for a new job!
It made me realise the amount of amazing work we do at Knox Academy and that the Drama Department is actually doing some outstanding work; giving our young people an engaging, emerging and current curriculum.
Hopefully LTS will hopefully upload NARs that will actually be NARs that our assessments will be worth matching!
Am I being too harsh?
